Loved this dress, got many compliments from men and women!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wear dresses between and 8 and 12. This is a form fitting dress so I needed the 12 through my hips. The color is a deep blue almost purple in color. It needs no embellishment but chandelier earrings are perfect to show off the wonderful details at the shoulders. I did find that the hook and eyes at the back top of the dress, came undone several times during the evening, and that was a bit annoying , but other than that...it was a gorgeous and unusual dress.

The dress fit great everywhere except where u button it in the back by the back of your neck with the mesh. It was a bit bunchy but my hair hid that well.

Feminine, orgeous lace sheath hugs my curves and remains tastefully classic! It fit true to size and skimed a couple inches above the knee. Wore it with nude patent kitten heels. Felt wonderfully beautiful in it! Another successful RTR experience-I'm hooked!

This dress is perfection! I received more compliments in one night than I've ever received in my life. The color, cut, style is spot on. I'm normally between a 2-4, but if you're a solid 4 it should fit well (I had some wiggle room).

Feels Luxe, but it's a little matronly

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This is a pretty dress that feels very expensive (i.e. worth the price of the rental). The photo doesn't do the detailing justice and I wish I had taken a better photo of the neckline. Unfortunately, it wasn't the best fit for my body so I did not wear it, and I felt it was a better dress for a woman in her 40s or 50s who wants a pretty detailed dress, but nothing too flashy. If you are tall and want a long dress, this is a good dress to wear. I'd imagine it would be too long for girls under 5'5, but to each her own. I have wide shoulders and this dress didn't do me any favors. The material is thick -ish, so it's nice that it doesn't show all your flaws. If you are hourglass, they dress fits very nicely to show your curves. The size 6 was a little big (I go between a 4 and 6) so maybe size down for your backup size.

This dress photographed gorgeously

Size worn: 16
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
The fit was a little snug, got two sizes and had to wear the larger of the two. the color of the nude illusion neckline wasn't exactly the the shade of my skin tone, so it looked a little off. It's a much more extravagant dress than it looks like, but was alright for an evening wedding. I might have elected for something a little more summery, if I could do it over.

Everything was gorgeous! I felt so comfortable and special in it...a definite repeat in the future!

Size worn: 16
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I have a VERY large chest (36-J) , so I was leary about ordering a rental dress without being able to do alterations. It was a great fit though. The material was substantial enough that I was actually able to wear the dress without a bra or corset like I'm used to. Thank God because it was an outdoor wedding in Charleston and everyone was melting! The corset would have made me faint! The zipper was a little tricky to get zipped up, but put some gusto into it and you'll be fine...those zippers always seem to cause a bit of trouble and it has nothing to do with size. If you want to feel like a million bucks, definitely rent this. It is a much richer, brighter blue than is shown (think regal, royal, cobalt blue) which complemented my red hair perfectly!

Beautiful silhouette, very interesting illusion neckline. I had the pin the back of the collar with a safety pin for a better fit, but my hair covered it so that was no problem. I got many compliments, including from two of the people who were working at the gala who see a lot of dresses and aren't normally moved to comment on guests' dresses! Really enjoyed wearing this.

Such a beautiful dress and extremely well made. I originally rented the 6 because that's all that was available but it was too tight. I called and they shipped me the size 8 right away. The detail is so gorgeous and the bride kept telling me how much she loved my dress.

Gorgeous dress, horrible zipper

Size worn: 14
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was a beautiful style and color- perfect for a very conservative wedding I attended. However, the zipper was a nightmare. You definitely cannot zip it up on your own. At first, I thought it was just too small of a size. I tried on the larger size and that one had the same issue. My husband and a friend had to zip me into the smaller size, which was tight in the rib cage at first ( I am a 38DDD) but the dress for beautifully after everything was in place and I received endless compliments all night

Size worn: 6

Wore this as a bridesmaid to my friends wedding who told us we could pick anything in gray or blue. I was complimented 20+ times throughout the night. The dress is comfortable and super flattering. RTR did a solid for me, too. When the dress came, there was a problem with the zipper. I called in a panic, hoping they had another size six and they did! RTR overnighted me the dress and it zipped!! Great service, thanks so much!
